Neuromodulators

Botox in Vancouver with Dr. Jeannie MacDonald

While wrinkles are an inescapable part of life, some wrinkles are caused by repetitive muscle motions rather than age. With repetitive muscle contractions causing wrinkles and lines to form, even young adults can begin to develop wrinkles. You can smooth and soften the appearance of your moderate to severe lines and wrinkles with natural-looking results from Botox®. 

When it is time to refresh your skin and diminish the appearance of your wrinkles, you need a provider with unparalleled expertise and an artistic eye who understands your needs and aesthetic aims. Dr. Jeannie MacDonald’s unique artistic skills allow her to develop a distinct treatment plan to reveal your most beautiful, natural-looking self.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a neuromodulator formulated from the purified form of botulinum toxin type A. Despite their origin, neuromodulators have been deemed safe for cosmetic procedures and present few and rare side effects. Neuromodulators such as Botox® temporarily block signals to the muscles that cause the skin to wrinkle. By preventing the repetitive muscular motion that causes wrinkles, Botox® can reduce and smooth the appearance of fine lines.

With her artistic background, Dr. MacDonald understands that very subtle choices drastically improve each patient’s appearance. With extreme precision with every injection, Dr. MacDonald targets only the muscles that can cause the skin to wrinkle, so you will not be left with an overdone or expressionless appearance.

Botox® is an effective treatment for patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles and offer natural-looking results. Without affecting movements in other areas of the face, Botox® treatments can provide a smoother appearance to the:

  • Eye area, including crows feet and glabellar lines
  • Forehead frown lines
  • Gummy smile
  • Relax jaw muscle to reduce pain from grinding teeth
  • Excessive sweating axilla or hands
  • Lips (lip flip)

Am I A Good Candidate for Botox®?

Overall, wrinkles and aging can affect our appearance and negatively influence our self-esteem and our overall sense of wellness. However, Botox® help slow the physical signs of aging, helping you regain confidence in your appearance. 

The best time to start neuromodulator treatment with Botox® injections is before lines begin to deepen. Botox® can help soften those lines and keep them from getting deeper. Many patients are also interested in the Botox Lip Flip, a technique that creates a fuller upper lip without requiring dermal fillers.

During your consultation with Dr. MacDonald, she will discuss your aesthetic goals and recommend the placement and number of Botox® units.

Typically, candidates for Botox® should:

  • Be at least 18 years old 
  • Be non-smokers
  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Not be pregnant or nursing
  • Have no history of neuromuscular diseases
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  • Understand the procedural risks 
  • Be prepared to closely follow Dr. MacDonald’s pre- and post-procedure instructions

Vancouver Botox® FAQs

Your Botox® cost in Vancouver is determined by your individual needs, the area to be treated, and the number of units needed. Following your consultation, Dr. MacDonald’s assistant will provide a detailed breakdown of your neuromodulator cost in Vancouver.

Botox® treatments are usually quick, 10-15 minutes, with minimal discomfort. However, during your consultation, be sure to discuss your pain concerns with Dr. MacDonald.

Typically, Botox® results will last for approximately 3-6 months. However, each patient will experience varied results.

You should avoid strenuous activities for approximately 24 hours following your Vancouver neuromodulator treatment. 

During a Botox® lip flip, Dr. MacDonald will inject precise amounts of filler into the upper lip. Once the neurotoxin kicks in, the muscles around the mouth relax, and the lip will naturally “flip” upward to look fuller.

In general, a Botox® lip flip lasts for approximately 2-3 months.
